Thirukkadaiyur Amritaghateswarar and Abirami Amman:


The famous temple of Sri Amritaghateswarar and Abirami Amman is located in Thirukkadaiyur. Thirukkadaiyur is a Paadal Petra Shiva Sthalam. According to legend, during samudra manthana Sri Ganesha stole the pot of Amrita and hid it in Thirukkadaiyur. Sri Ganesha also worshipped a Shiva Lingam with some Amrita and so the Shiva Lingam came to be known as Amritaghateswarar (Amrita means nectar and Ghata means pot).

Thirukkadaiyur is also the place where Lord Shiva is said to have saved His devotee Markandeya from the clutches of Yama on the day of his death.

Thirukkadaiyur is also the place where the devotee Abirami Pattar sang the Abirami Antati, a hundred praises of Mother Abirami, whereby the Divine Mother appeared before him and saved him from the clutches of death.
